Let's see . . . what shall we call this one? Fit to be Tied? I'm Your Present? I'm ridiculously happy with this. Honestly, I think it is the best thing I have ever sewn. Here's the back:

|No shoes now! What is the world coming to?|
This one came together much faster because 1) I'd already done this pattern twice and 2) I didn't do any piping. I wasn't sure I would like the final product, but I really do! It's going to look great with the gold metallic/flax linen and navy espadrilles I got from J. Crew several years ago.
Whew! Now that those two projects are finished, maybe I can (finally) clean my house!
